Super Stoked About This Praying Mantis Greeting Me When I Came Home Tonight

I love me a praying mantis. This one was on the handrail waiting to greet me when I came home tonight.

He’s just so cute. Hopefully, I didn’t hurt him too much with the flash. After this photo I cuddled him for awhile, so there should be no hard feelings.

Here are some fun facts you might like to know about the Praying Mantis:
– They are the only insect that can turn their heads 180 degrees.
– They will eat their own kind.
– The female will sometimes eat a male during or after mating.
– They have a one year life span.
– Loved by farmers because they eat crop destroying insects.
– Of about 2000 species there are only 18 known species in the entire North American continent.
– Have a single ear located on the underside of its belly.

Until next time…
